Bahay Tsinoy


Bahay Tsinoy is a museum located in Intramuros. It is a place where the history, lives and contributions of Chinese people in Philippine life and history were documented.
Tsinoy is an informal name for a person with both Filipino and Chinese ancestry or influence. Many Chinese have married Filipinos/as and so their children were called Chinese Mestizos/as or simply Tsinoy.  It was showcased in the museum how the Chinese have come to the Philippines, and one of the main reasons is because the exchange of goods with the Filipinos or what they commonly call bartering or trading.
 In addition, you can also see various facsimiles of books and documents written by famous Chinese publicist during those times. There is also a collection of Chinese artifacts such as porcelain pieces during the Tang, Sung, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties in China. There are pictures and life-size waxed sculpture of Chinese and Tsinoy people showcasing their lives and contributions in the evolution of the Philippines. Some of them are our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, former president Cory Aquino and singer-songwriter Jose Mari Chan.
It was a great activity! I learned a lot not just on the museum but also during the trip. Our group have encountered different kinds of people and adventured on the trip going there. Moreover, Bahay Tsinoy gave us a better understanding on our relationship with the Chinese. It was very beneficial for us because we are able to fully understand the roots and lifestyle of the Tsinoy and the Chinese and actually compare it with our own.

The World's Smallest Car: 'Wind Up' built by British Constructor

British constructor Perry Watkins has assembled officially the world's smallest licensed car - and it has a top speed of 60kph.




At just 41 inches high, 51 inches long and a seemingly impossible 26 inches wide, the miniscule motor is in danger of being overpowered by other vehicles on the road.
But Mr Watkins has made sure that his 'Wind Up' mini car has enough power to compete with the larger cars, with a top speed of 60kph (37mph).



Though it may not be enough to hold its own on the German autobahns, the car features seat belts and has a few flames licking the side of the car, for added 'cool factor'.
The body comes from a repainted children's ride, while the chassis is borrowed from a Shanghai Shenke quad bike. Meanwhile, the tyres are more regularly seen on Monkey motorcycles.







This isn't the first time that Mr Watkins has devised a strange vehicle, after his 'Flatmobile' was unveiled a couple of years ago. It stood at just 19 inches high and could reach speeds of 100mph.

(Flatmobile)


The World's smallest car was shown off at a motoring show in Essen, Germany, last November 27.

Fearless..


I'm tired.
Restless..
I don't know what to do.
I'm not sure with what I'm feeling..
Or maybe, I really don't know what I feel.
I'm not sure if I'm still happy..
I'm not sure if I still can..
I wanna rest..
I'm really really tired.
I need someone to talk to but no one's there..
No one's listening..
I'm tired..
I need rest..
